NEWS From Over The MOON
All of us love good news stories and especially when we need one ourselves. So, this section is about exactly that kind of story - a good news story.
They are stories that lift us up - make us feel good about the world - stories which place a warm glow in our hearts and a smile on our faces.
These stories may be about anything - including, a person’s good fortune, the rescue of an animal, or someone’s extraordinary act of kindness. They each have the power to make us feel, quite Over the Moon!
Innocent Is Found Guilty
Innocent Drinks recently had an advertisement banned.
The Advertising Standards Authority banned the ad because it claimed that to drink Innocent drinks – bought in plastic bottles – was good for the planet.
So, what did Innocent have to say for themselves?
Why did they believe they lived up to their name?
What were they thinking when they made this advertisement?
Trust Is Like Virginity
A favourite quote of mine, was shared with me by a wise African.
The context in which it was said has been long forgotten – but the quote itself stayed fixed in my mind as clear as day,
“Trust is like virginity – once it’s lost – it is lost!”
…and it stays that way!
How very true that is – at least for virginity.
It is just as true for me with respect to Trust.
If someone is prepared to lie to you about anything, then – in my view – they are not to be trusted.

What On Earth
A writing competition for young people on the theme “What on Earth” is a great opportunity for the imagination to run riot.
It’s up to the young writer to decide what “What on Earth means to them. Perhaps it’s a question? Maybe it’s an exclamation!
Stories, poems and essays can all be entered. There are two age categories, with prizes for the winner in each group.
There is one thing in this world that is guaranteed to send shivers down the spine of the ordinary person. And those that worked out the truth of that, capitalised on it – Big Time.
Health – or rather the lack of it - is the scare tactic used for decades now by the Big Pharma industry and it pays – Big Time.
And the thing about money is that it attracts in ways that ill-health doesn’t. Put these two properties together and we arrive at 2022 – and a picture that becomes clearer by the day.
